    I'll be exploring the Native American poll responses in a separate post, but you bring up one possibility for sure.

    As far as a learning disability increasing error rates on a push-button poll response, that too is certainly possible. But in the previous post in this series, I showed a maximum error rates on the gender question of about 0.2%, and this should include the sort of error you mention. So we know it will not have a huge impact on responses.
